Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Soldiers of the Captain! Stand for Him, and fight,
Hardness glad enduring, armored in His might,
He is that great Victor, praised in angels’ songs,
Glory of each soldier who to Him belongs.

Refrain:
Soldiers of the Captain!
Stand for Him and fight,
Hardness glad enduring,
Armored in His might.

2 Leader never vanquished, more than conqu’rer too,
Through Himself He maketh all His soldiers true;
O’er the foe triumphant, He must still prevail,
So, His soldiers faithful, with Him cannot fail. [Refrain]

3 Take ye then the helmet, breastplate, shield and sword,
Thus equipped for battle ready at His word;
Fierce though be the warfare, sure is the renown,
And though dark the conflict, bright the promised crown. [Refrain]

4 Jesus, Captain! help us soldiers good to be,
Living, dying, ever fighting Lord, for Thee;
Eager to march forward, in those ranks of Thine,
Waiting but the order, from Thy voice divine! [Refrain]
